Title:Emma's War - Love, Betrayal and Death in the Sudan
This is the story of aid worker Emma McCune. Beautiful, compassionate, driven in her work, she was famous throughout eastern Africa and the aid community for going about her work in a mini-skirt. Initially a Princess Diana, she became a Lady Macbeth after marrying one of the local warlords, who was deeply enmeshed in both rebellion and murder.
